PROCUREMENT organisation Fusion21 is launching a £500 million national heating and renewables framework in the new year.
The organisation says its new four-year framework is designed to meet the needs of all public sector members in the housing, education, health, blue light, local authority and central government sectors.
It provides domestic and commercial solutions with a lot strategy that will offer a range of services from consultancy to design, servicing, maintenance and installation.
The framework also includes a selection of renewable technology applications from air and ground source heat pumps to solar thermal, electric heating and hot water systems. The commercial element of this framework can be used for a range of installations, including district heating systems and the installatio/servicing of Heat Interface Units.
Providing regional coverage, the framework is expected to facilitate local delivery and is structured to open doors to SMEs, enabling suppliers to bid for works suited to their experience and expertise.
“Set for launch in January this compliant procurement solution has been developed in response to market demand – reflecting feedback provided from both our members and the supply chain,” said Peter Francis, Fusion21’s director of operations.
“With the use of renewable technologies on the rise and a government target to deliver decarbonisation – this framework will also support members to install a range of sustainable heating solutions tailored to their requirements.
“Members accessing this framework will benefit from greater efficiencies, support from technical procurement experts and an experienced supply chain, in addition to flexible call-off processes, increased SME collaboration and social value delivery aligned to organisational priorities.”
Tender documents setting out criteria are already available on the mytenders web portal – www.mytenders.co.uk – under Notice ID OCT158374.
The submission deadline is Wednesday 20th November 2019 at 12 noon.
